About us

Merilampi’s roots are in company law, which means that we have a comprehensive understanding of business law and business life on a broader scale.

This helps us predict our clients’ needs in advance and find solutions that best promote the client’s business.

Our expertise

We are particularly known for our work in mergers and acquisitions and dispute resolution, but our services also cover the entire spectrum of demanding business law, ranging from competition and EU law, employment and labour law, real estate and construction law to assignments related to technology and intellectual property.

We always strive to gain an in-depth understanding of the client’s business and to create an effective partnership that achieves results. In all our assignments, we want to encounter our clients also on a personal level: together we can achieve more.

Corporate culture

In our corporate culture, partners are integrally involved throughout the assignments. Our teams are diverse yet compact: diversity ensures different perspectives and compactness guarantees the client does not pay for any unnecessary work. We do not develop any unnecessary hierarchy or red tape, and we are driven by our passion to solve legal problems.

Clients see our operating model in the in-depth expertise of our team, practical and uncomplicated service and cost-effectiveness.

Corporate responsibility

We do not seek quick wins, but rather build the foundation of our competitiveness for the long term. By taking care of our profitability and competitiveness, we are better positioned to responsibly address broader issues. We aim to create value sustainably for our clients, employees, and society as a whole.

We engage in ongoing dialogue with our key stakeholders. We want to be actively involved in discussions, especially concerning business, legal practice, and the advocacy sector. We also wish to demonstrate through our example the strength and societal importance of equal and diverse working environments.

Our values

Solution-focused approach

We focus on what is essential and we provide our clients with uncomplicated solutions.

Solution-focused approach means that we focus on the essential: our legal advice always builds on the business goals of our clients. Our solution-focused approach is also reflected in our agility. Doing business with us is uncomplicated, practical and quick.


The interests of our clients and the well-being of our people are our top priorities. Appreciation and humanity can be seen in everything we do.

We appreciate and care for our clients and people. A humane operating model also means conducting our business in a good and responsible manner: it creates long-term value for our clients, employees and the society as a whole.


Our passion is to serve our clients and develop as professionals and as people.

Passion is the key driver for us. The importance of expertise and problem-solving skills increases in proportion to the difficulty of the legal problem. We are constantly developing ourselves professionally as well as personally. This enables us to provide our clients with the best possible service.


We always act in the best interests of our clients and with the highest integrity. We are proud of the uncompromised quality and trustworthiness of our work.

Integrity is our moral backbone. Without it, we would have nothing. We are resolute in promoting the interests of our clients and we always seek for the best possible solution. However, we will not do that at any cost: we only propose solutions that we can support.
